Paper Abstract

This report is on a new method of proton exchange that is much easier to use than current methods, is of equal optical quality, less substrate stress, and lends itself to large scale manufacturing. This process relates to annealed proton-exchanged guided wave devices in lithium niobate (LiNbO3) and lithium tantalate (LiTaO3) used in integrated optic circuits (IOC's). IOC's are useful in fiber optic gyros, photonic switching devices, and intensity/phase modulation systems. They have low optical loss, low voltage drive, high frequency bandwidth, and small size and weight.
